I've been a bit busy as of late. I think the easiest way to quantify the last few months is to share a few photos and a video. God is moving. I was recently honored with the 2016 Cloris Leachman Excellence in Theatre Special Recognition Award and my production of A Soldier's Play won the 2016 Cloris Leachman Award for Best Play. I also got a chance to assist Anne Kauffman on Lorraine Hansberry's The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window. Check out the slideshow of production photos from the last nine months and listen to a radio interview I did with Lorraine Hansberry's sister, Mamie. I also included my acceptance speech for my Cloris Leachman award that includes some commentary on issues the Des Moines theatre community is facing regarding equity, diversity, and inclusion. On the evening that I was honored a group from the Des Moines Latinx Forum were protesting outside the theatre. I stand with them in their fight to end whitewashing in our theatre community. I have full confidence that those offending organizations are capable of rectifying it in the future. They must!
